Well connected (right next to the railway station and the metro line), with a wonderful fitness room and professional staff, this hotel is perfect for business travellers.
Only downside: the not-so-spacious rooms, on average.

The hotel is very conveniently located, good, clean rooms that are well appointed. Staff is friendly and helpful. Very good breakfast. Nice plus is the free cell phone in the room which is great to make free calls and to use as guide to the city of Lausanne. We would definitely come back.

I stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Lausanne. The Continental is very conveniently located right across from the main train station. The hotel itself is pretty plain, but is clean and well-maintained. Rooms are reasonably sized, and bathrooms are clean and up to date. The breakfast buffet is of good quality and staff are friendly and helpful.

Free internet is included, but it was pretty spotty, and dropped in and out regularly.

There is a gym next door which is very good, and free access is provided. There is also a very good coffee shop downstairs. Overall, a good choice for Lausanne; nothing fancy, but more than adequate.

A friend and I visited this hotel for the second time for three nights last week. I booked directly with the hotel as the price was the best I could find. Booking was easy on the web and the website easy to navigate for a computer phobe like me. Prior to leaving England, I asked by email if the room had a kettle. Within minutes, the reply had come back and the answer was yes. On arrival, the staff were exceptionally pleasant, courteous and informative. We were given our keys, a transport pass( a real help which we used several times) and all instructions needed. Arriving at our single rooms, the space was big for a single room, warm, a very clean bathroom with all necessary facilities and towels. One marvellous aspect was that the window could be opened and the radiator adjusted - a must for my husband(not with me this trip) . The bed was comfortable, the TV had English channels and the safe was easy to work! Breakfast was extensive and not at all rushed - we were chatting til way past the finish time but the staff asked if we wanted more food before clearing away and we were left in peace. There is a pain quotidian as part of the hotel which closed at 7pm. I would have liked it to have served dinner but there was a multitude of restaurants very close by. The staff were always smiling and helpful. Finally, the hotel is directly across the road from the station so no dragging heavy suitcases very far. This really is a super hotel. We didn't use the gym ( walking up the steep hills of Lausanne provided us with all the exercise we needed!) but everything else was super. The hotel also provided a small bottle of water daily although the tap water is fine to drink. Should I find myself needing a hotel in Lausanne again, the hotel Continental will be my first choice!

Excellent location just opposite the train station and in the middle of everything.
Nevertheless we did not have any problems with the street noises.
The receptionist was kind enough to lend us the towels on the day of checkout as we were going to a thermal bath.
The breakfast cost an additional CHF 20 p.p. , so we did not take it, but guess what, this is Switzerland.
Overall a nice hotel with good value for money.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for the time you have spent in order to give your positive feedback following your recent stay in our Hotel. As you have mentioned, all our rooms are very quiet even those facing the train station. Concerning the breakfast, the rate for a huge choice of items, is correct for a four stars Hotel, but you have also the possibility to have one in our Café-restaurant next to the front desk for less charges.
Looking forward to your next visit.
With my best regards
